Second edition WATER 17 March 2024 @De Sering 16h-22h with:

Let Blue Dog stir your soul with his "Songs of the Anthropocene". Through joy and mourning he muses his way to the conclusion that it is worth carrying on, despite the darkness. This one-of-a-kind artist from Amsterdam sings beautifully sharp lyrics about these confusing times, while accompanying himself on the piano with compositions full of melody, harmony and soul. But he plays polkas as well.

For almost ten years Blue Dog has written about how people treat each other and the planet. What began as self-therapy to deal with the 'Anthropocene' (the age of mankind) has led to over 40 songs and 3 albums that attempt to capture the essence of our time in words and music. There are singalongs such as Roast Together, razor-sharp raps like Water uit de Kraan (water from the tap), and on his latest album there are 12 fresh songs, like the vivacious We Sterven Uit (we are going extinct) about climate change, and Ri Chun Hee about the enticement of fascism.

Blue Dog often performs at XR events. He has written several protest songs. Het also frequently performs in the underground cabaret-scene in the Randstad. Go to for more information about this artist.

'Deep sea minded' is a sonic investigation into the deep sea for drums and electronics by Thomas Jaspers. The deep sea is the most inhospitable part of nature on our planet. The pressure there is immense, the darkness complete. It is also home to the most wondrous of creatures. It is one of the few parts of nature that remains untouched. But the question is: for how long? Jaspers finds inspiration in light, darkness, stillness and the emptiness of the deep. He also finds it in the incredible cacophony that humans will produce once they start mining the deep sea for precious metals. Through sound he attempts to bring this world to life. Thomas plays drums in several experimental jazz and improvisation groups. He also campaigns against Deep Sea Mining with Ocean Rebellion as part of  grindcore metal band 'The Polymetallic Nodules'.

'Octopus Sessions' - is a musical journey in poetry, song, looping layers, landscapes and beats by Leela May Stokholm (she/ her) and Marik de Koning (they/ them).Diving through the waters of our collective consciousness – Octopus Sessions is an ode to water that connects, touches, comes and goes. A co-created fluidity of weaving the moment into an ark. To hold us before the dykes break.

Leela (DK/GB, born in India) is an independent performance artist, writer, singer, mother and visual artist. Her work combines her love for nature with life as a journey through inner emotional landscapes. She teaches Voice improvisation at the Mime School in Amsterdam.

Marik is a multifaceted musician and artist. They can be found playing jazz standards in big bands, to electronically producing activist songs. They are fascinated by the magic of improvisation and how awfully hard it can be to let go.

Volkskeuken will be served between 17:45-18:30. RSVP through the ticket link
